A MAN found with a stun gun in his pocket has appeared in court again.
David Johnson, of Hill Top Road in Paddock, was remanded by magistrates previously for sentencing.
He was found with the weapon together with some class B drugs following a search by officers.
Johnson, 42, had been stopped as he walked along the street on October 10.
He claimed that the found the weapon on the street and kept it, believing it to be a cattle prodder.
Johnson also had a bag of white powder, which was confirmed to be amphetamine.
He was further charged with breaching the terms of a restraining order on three separate occasions.
Johnson had been banned from contacting his former partner Helen Burnet following his conviction for a domestic-related incident.
Earlier this month magistrates remanded him for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
Johnson was due to be sentenced yesterday.
However the probation service said that it was unable to complete a report on him.
This was because staff were unable to secure a slot with him via the prison video link, the bench was told.
Neil Murphy, mitigating, said: “This matter was listed for sentence today and through no fault of his own it isn’t ready.”
Johnson was told that he will now be sentenced next Tuesday.
He was remanded until then.
